Featuring: Anastia Kyvelidou, PhD, Center of Research in Human Movement Variability, University of Nebraska Omaha

Date/Time: Friday, September 15th | 9-11am

Location: Mike & Josie Harper Center, Room 2029, Creighton University Campus

The course aims to introduce the latest research developments on early signs of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in the first two years of life and early intervention paradigms for infants at high-risk for ASD. We will discuss the criteria for classifying infants at high risk for ASD, identify DSM-5 diagnostic changes in the ASD diagnostic criteria, and summarize the empirically based screening and assessment methodology in ASD. This course will prepare you to recognize the presence of risk factors and/or early warning signs of ASD and be familiar with screening and assessment tools to ensure that infants at high risk for ASD are being identified and provided with the appropriate programs and services. We will also discuss the most recent technological and therapeutic advancements in infants at high-risk for ASD.
